Discover how regular exercise can help improve your body, particularly its impact on your brain health.
Sandi Cornez's insight:
Movement/exercise is critical for overall brain health and wellness. Recent research reveals that exercise promotes neurogenesis; your brain's ability to adapt and grow new brain cells.
During exercise nerve cells produce proteins that stimulate the production of another protein in the brain called Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor which stimulates the growth of new neurons and helps protect existing brain cells.
Physcial activity produces biochemical changes that strengthen your body and your brain – and in areas associated with memory and learning.
